NEW YORK STATE PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION'S STATEMENT ON CHILDREN SEPARATED FROM THEIR PARENTS AT THE BORDER

New York State Psychological Association (NYSPA) is deeply concerned for the well-being of children at the border who are torn apart from their parents and placed — according to media reports — in fence-like wire boxes or barrack-like buildings with other children who have been subjected to similar traumatic experiences.

We know from clinical and research experience that there are many ways disruptive attachment experiences can have a profoundly negative impact on a child’s emotional and physical health, not only during the acute phase of the experience, but as well across the lifespan and impinge on the child’s cognitive, medical, emotional, social and relational, educational, and vocational development.
